When asked on 105.3 The Fan Tuesday morning if Prescott's season-ending ankle injury alters his thinking about him wanting him to be the team's quarterback of the future, Jones said, "none."
Jones and the Cowboys have been criticized by some for not getting a long-term deal done with Prescott prior to his injury. He was asked about that critique today on Shan and RJ.
"We've got to be reminded that to have a team, we've got to really manage how we dole out our resources. Dak is deserving of anything that you want to put on a piece of paper, relatively speaking. He's deserving of that. If you evaluate what he can do to help us win championships, you can see that it's there. Plus, he's a leader at the premier leader spot. We've got to make it work. So what am I saying? I'm saying exactly the same thing I said the last time I was asked about this before the season started. This is part of the game, the business and the contract part."
As for when we might see Prescott on the field, Jones indicated that the reported four to six month recovery time is accurate.
"He should be ready to go for the latter part of our spring work. Knowing Dak he'll be out there soon. Physically, there should be no problem with him being back out there in early May or April."
